Top 5 Paraben-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin

Top 5 Paraben-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin

When looking for a moisturizer, lots of other facts play a big role. Such as Price, Suitability, SPF, Ingredients and the consistency especially if you have Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin. In case of Oily Skin in Summers and Dry in Winters (like me), one more factor adds-in which is "Lightweight Moisturizer". Right? 😇 And when you have sensitive as well as acne-prone skin, it is really a sensitive task to pick one. 
We don't want annoying pimples. 😄 So let's get into the list of Best or Top 5 Paraben and Chemical-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.




Before moving on to the list, I would like to mention that the List is in No Particular Order and each and every product is tried and experienced by me. Also, these products are Unisex so Both Male and Female Parties can try it. 😃 And yes, you can use these moisturizers under makeup too. 

My Skin Type: Oily in Summers and Dry in Winters along with Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin. I get breakouts, rash, pimples, open and clogged pores really easily if the product doesn't suit me. 

Paraben-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin

  • Himalaya Youth Eternity Day Cream with SPF 15

Price: Rs.465/- for 50ml
Rs.374/- for 50ml (Amazon.in)

A costly option but it is really worth the price. First, having sensitive skin Himalaya Products suits me and are effective as well. Mean to say with Himalaya products results can be surely be seen. Youth Eternity day Cream is a lightweight moisturizer so no problem with the oily or greasy skin. 😍 At the same time, it has SPF 15 and keeps my skin nourished even when skin gets dry in winters. 

More importantly, it claims to improve skin and reduce early signs of ageing and after continuous usage, I have actually seen the visible healthy texture and look on my skin. Not Joking! 😍

  • Biotique Morning Nectar Skin Moisturizer

Price: Rs.199/- for 120 ml
Rs.149/- for 120ml (Amazon.in)

I can go for any Biotique Product as it understands my skin so well. Also, it is a Chemical-Free Brand and are so effective for me that they work as a treatment. Plus it is affordable as well.

I won't put this moisturizer under the lightweight category as no doubt it is an Intense Moisturizer and a bit heavy for oily skin but the way it healed my rashes and gave me back my soft, supple, pink and healthy skin, I am in love with it. During summers, it will be heavy and shiny for oily skin but it is soothing as well. Even after being an Intense one, it didn't give me breakouts or clogged pores. 


Whenever a new product doesn't suit me, I come back to this. Can be used as a night cream and as a winter moisturizer as well.

  • Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Ultra Soothing Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30+ (Normal to Oily Skin)

Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Ultra Soothing Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30+ - Paraben-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin
Biotique Bio Aloe Vera Ultra Soothing Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 30+ (Normal to Oily Skin)


Price: Rs.290/- for 120 ml
Rs.276/- for 120 ml (In Stores)

It is a New Improved Version of this product with new packaging and new formulation targeted for Normal to Oily Skin. Why I am putting a sunscreen under moisturizer list because believe me, it moisturizes my skin so well. At the same time, it is light on my skin and I feel no heavy, greasy, oily, or shiny skin

It suits my sensitive skin and gave me no rash or breakoutsSo it is great for summers and winters as well. Moisturizer with Good SPF? Perfect! 😍

I picked this product from the store as soon as I saw words "Soothing" and "Oily Skin" because I always get the shiny and heavy skin with Good SPF Sunscreens but with this, not a problem. It is actually soothing and I feel cooling sensation for the few minutes. It is like a runny lightweight lotion which gets absorbed into my skin within seconds

----Important---
I am not able to track this exact product Online. The same product is available on Biotique website with a different packaging. So if you search for this, make sure it reads only "Face Lotion" and not Face and Body Lotion with a line "Normal to Oily Skin". 

Available at Biotique.com


  • Plum Green Tea Mattifying Moisturizer

Price: Rs.450/- for 50ml
Rs.399/- for 50ml (Amazon.in)

Another great oil-free and lightweight moisturizer for oily skin beauties. It is a targeted moisturizer for oily skin people. I have used this and seriously it doesn't even feel like I have applied something but still keeps skin moisturized. It gives no shine, no heaviness, and no breakouts. 

And it is specially designed for acne-prone skin. But costly! Right? 😄

  • VICCO Turmeric Skin Cream in Oil Base (Moisturizing Effect)

VICCO Turmeric Skin Cream in Oil Base (Moisturizing Effect) - Paraben-Free Moisturizers in India for Oily, Sensitive and Acne-Prone Skin
VICCO Turmeric Skin Cream in Oil Base (Moisturizing Effect)


Price: Rs.40/- for 50gm
Available in combo packs at Amazon.in

An age-old turmeric rich Brand, VICCO who needs no Introduction. 😍 And the famous VICCO Jingle - "Vicco Turmeric, Nahi Cosmetic". 😄A very decent and simple brand with decent claims. 


VICCO Turmeric Skin Cream in Oil Base is good for Oily Skin during Winters Only. 

It is a Great fit for Dry Skin People. But if your skin is like me, whose oily skin turns dry in winters but at the same time don't need Intense or Heavy Moisturizers, go for this. It feels light on the skin, adds a temporary glow and Moisturizes Well. It is a runny lotion and Gets Absorbed within Seconds. It doesn't give a heavy sticky feeling on the skin.

But, because it has oil-base, the oil sometimes starts separating from the cream. So make sure to shake it well and take only a pea-sized amount. If you are searching for an Affordable Chemical-Free Moisturizer which suits your skin, this is a good option. Works well During Winters Only for Oily Skin People.

  3. Vaadi herbals Oil control Tulip Moisturizer is a great one and the cheapest we will ever find. It is an awesome one. Also there are Aroma Magic Juniper berry oil free moisturizer for oily skin and Aroma Magic Clarysage Moisturising lotion for combination skin, both with spf 15 and hyaluronic acid and light and natural and affordable. Look them up and see if you can add them here. I am loving the clarysage one now as I have a few dry patches in my oily skin recently. :) Another option would be Biotique Visibly ageless Bio Dandelion serum which is a serum but is moisturising enough for oily skin.
